How could you make us choose they are all amaIng :) great idea.:flowers:

MAfan 06-15-2009 05:23 AM

I've had some difficulties in choosing, because I've not seen a tiara I really like...I'm not saying that these are bad tiaras, but...I don't really like anyone of them.

Her_Majesty 06-15-2009 05:45 AM

My gavourite Tiara owned by the Norwegian RF is the Queen Josephine Diamond Tiara closely followed by the Pearl Tiara (large and small.. I like both versions). I'm glad they made a copy of this tiara after it was stolen.
I also quite like the Turqoise Tiara and the small version of the Malteser Tiara.
Least favourite Tiaras: definitely the Star Wars Topaz Tiara and the large version of the Malteser Tiara with the Crosses.

i like 4 best!
there are so many nice tiaras. why did mette-marit get the smallest one? :lol:

LadyK 06-17-2009 04:44 PM

I chose the first one (Queen Josephine Diamond Tiara) because I think it's the prettiest. I also think it will look good on both MM and Sonja, something that cannot be said with many of the other tiaras! :queen3:

I'd also like to vote for the worst- the modern topaz star trek thing.:yuk:

iowabelle 06-17-2009 04:50 PM

I think I liked the Queen Josephine best too. I think the problem with some of the Norwegian tiaras is that they are either clumsy/top-heavy or not very impressive/too small.

Some of the tiaras worn by Martha-Louise or Mette-Merit are fairly small. I think they're attractive for the ladies but not necessarily the prettiest.

The modern topaz tiara is pretty awful, as is Princess Astrid's winged tiara.

Marsel 06-17-2009 05:23 PM

My favourite tiaras are the following:

1. Queen Maud's Pearl Tiara (large)
2. Empress Josephine's Emerald Tiara
3. Queen Josephine's Diamond Tiara

The Diamond Daisy Tiara is almost exactly a century old; it was made around 1910.
King Harald and Queen Sonja gave it as a wedding gift to Mette-Marit.

iowabelle 06-17-2009 06:08 PM

I like the Daisy Tiara on MM. It fits her delicate features, but I don't think it's very grand.

Marsel 06-17-2009 06:19 PM

I agree, the Daisy Tiara compliments Mette-Marit's features, however I would really love to see her with more 'queenly' pieces more often.

susan alicia 06-17-2009 09:23 PM

thx :flowers:
just voted for it.

I fear we have to wait until she's Queen or Norway's "Royal First Lady" until we see her with one of the larger tiaras. ;)

Btw, I'd really love to know who voted for the larger version of the Malteser Tiara. :D

susan alicia 06-18-2009 03:13 AM

:previous: slightly off topic but do we have a thread of who is member of the order of Malta?

I doubt Mette-Marit will choose to wear a lot of larger pieces even when she is Queen; her preference seem to be small and simple jewels.

I really do hate the way Queen Sonja wears the Malteser Tiara. It is not exactly a very beautiful tiara in any case (in my opinion) but wearing all 3 crosses so close to each other makes it even uglier. I actually like how the tiara looked on Queen Maud in a couple of pictures though.

Laurentienne 06-18-2009 05:26 AM

It is a hard choise, there are so many beautiful ones. But I voted for number one. :flowers:

I also think that CP Mette-Marit will wear more "Queenly" tiaras after she has become a Queen, even though she already has worn the amethyst tiara several times. That one is quite Queenly in my opinion. :flowers:

agami.pearl 06-18-2009 05:47 AM

I choose amethyst tiara. I really like it :D

normalil 06-19-2009 11:25 AM

Where can i see the Norwegian amethyst tiara? (I love amethysts, and adore the Swedish one.)
